Paper bus tickets will soon be replaced

Tickets in their current format will only be on sale until Nov. 30, 2017. Use the Presto e-Purse or cash instead. It’ll cost you the same or less. On Para Transpo, use cash or money loaded on ParaPay. You’ll be able to use old tickets on the bus (but not on the O-Train Trillium Line) until April 30, 2018. Make the switch to Presto today! »
